Re: “The Morning Roundup: Early Voting, Chatham Zoning, Wake Schools, Tim Kaine

“The more [early voting] sites we have, the more opportunities exist for violations.”

By that logic, the only way to eliminate fraud is to eliminate voting.

Re: “Opening arguments launch historic voting rights trial in North Carolina

Right after taking care of the threat of Voting Fraud, the GOP is going to gear up the USArmy to hunt down and capture Bigfoot b/c he is a huge and dangerous animal terrorizing communities.

Every measure must be taken to assure the safety of those communities. Every effort must be made to stop the terror. Every dollar spent is a dollar going towards greater security for all Americans. We must fight the threat of Bigfoot or else our country will be destroyed...

Re: “Updated: 4th Circuit strikes down Va. same-sex marriage ban; Cooper drops Amendment One defense

We'll see... Language is very important: "Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State. This section does not prohibit a private party from entering into contracts with another private party; nor does this section prohibit courts from adjudicating the rights of private parties pursuant to such contracts."

NC does not prohibit SSM. It just does not "recognize" those marriages as "valid"??? NC also does not limit the benefits afforded to consenting adults (regardless of gender) that have entered into secular civil unions (ie., marriages)...

I am curious to see how NC and Fed Courts work this out... I'll make popcorn...

Re: “General Assembly opts out of Common Core, against Gov. McCrory's wishes

There is also writing in the bill that would take away control over Education from the DPI and give it to a bunch of GA Political Appointees. I think that is the greater danger in the Bill...

Re: “Republican voter I.D. bill heads to House next week

"Voter ID" gets everyone all huffy-puffy. Everyone should realize that NC Law already requires you to present a "current and valid photo identification" at the poll: http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/enactedlegisla…


The biggest problem that I see with the new bill is the introduction of the Voter ID Card, for those people that do not otherwise have a "valid" ID. At a time when we should be tightening our belts, the State is proposing to spend upwards of $20mil to give a slim percentage of our population ID Cards:

In all fairness, DanTK did suggest that some Asian families come from India...
